MPs just got handed ANOTHER pay rise – DOUBLE the amount the Tories gave to nurses

"Members of Parliament will be celebrating today after the announcement that their basic salary is set to rise yet again – this time by £1,300 or 1.8% – to almost three times the national average wage, at a whopping £77,379.

This latest payrise for MPs comes despite the Tories handing paltry pay rises of just 1% to Britain’s heroic public sector workers such as nurses and police officers last year.

The latest announcement will mean that MPs will have seen their basic salaries rise by £9,319 in the last 4 years alone, whilst the rest of Britain has suffered stagnating wages thanks to the effects of 7 years of crippling Tory austerity on investment and productivity.

MPs pay rises are set by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority, and are meant to match pay rates for public sector workers. But this certainly hasn’t been the case since the Tories came to power in 2010."

One Would Hope MPs with Honour Would vote it down, Or as Individuals refuse to take the increase:
The Wont, Far to many snouts in the Trough,
Its utterly disgusting; Shows me the Only Answer for Britain now is (Dare I say It) Communism
After a brief Civil War; that I fear is the way our Battered Society is going

The lot of them make me PUKE! :evil:

Give them a serious pay cut and sack half of them next door in the house of cash.



"One Would Hope MPs with Honour Would vote it down, Or as Individuals refuse to take the increase:"

Totally agree Paul, its just this lot have a serious problem thinking along that line of thought.
All is well at the SSP club.

Some journalists argue that we have to pay them these fat cat salaries if we want the best to run UK ltd, well!! i'd hate to see the worst if thats the our best to choose from.

The voluntary sector could run Britain better than these self interested buffoons. Independent decision my big toe nail, if wages were set by any impartial body, public sector would have not had virtual pay cuts on top of the other cuts and minimum wage would be tagged to inflation.
